Waiting......

Today my dad went on walk in the harbour but saw Reg's boat in the harbour mud. Evidently he didnt take his swimmer out. Of course we were wondering why he didn't take his swimmer out yesterday but we remembered that it began thundering and lightening. We decided that swimming in low tide was too frustrating so we decided to swim later in the day when the tide was in. The Geller's plus Jasper went to Canterbury to see the cathedral and other marvels, whilst my family walked around Folkestone. We walked all the way up to the west cliff hall. And saw some art pieces that were part of the art show called the Folkestone Triennial. After hours...ok slight exaggeration..of walking we met back up at the hotel to go swimming. Of course we didnt take into account the fact that the wind usually picks up later in the day, so the water was choppy. So Leore and I ended up doing more bodysurfing than actual swimming. We called Reg at eight o'clock as usual. He said that he was taking the other person out tomorrow for sure. Of course that could always change but hopefully not.

Hey Delia! Looks like your swim will coincide with the start of the Olympics - that's pretty cool. The best athletes in the world start competing in all the sports, you start swimming the English Channel! Good luck and have fun doing the swim!
